Counterfeits amid the cow pies

Posted By on Mon, Oct 13, 2008 at 8:45 AM

LRPD reports on a vice detail inspection at the State Fair:

Vice detectives inspected a booth at the State Fair that was selling various name brand items, which were suspected to be counterfeit.  Vice detectives contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and ICE Agents responded to the Arkansas State Fair and made contact with Boukare Ouiya, 52, of Aurora, Colorado.  ICE Agents determined Mr. Ouiya to be an illegal alien and took custody of him.  Mr. Ouiya stated he was not the owner of the booth and could not provide the name of the owner of the booth.  Mr. Ouiya attempted to call the owner of the booth with negative results.  Vice Detectives took custody of the items in the booth to store at the Little Rock Police Department Property Room for safekeeping, including but not limited to 179 pairs of Nike shoes, 20 Louis Vuitton purses, 102 Coach purses, 48 Chanel purses, 24 Dolce & Gabbana purses, 1 Fendi purse, 2 Kate Spade purses, 1 Christian Dior purse, and 12 Gucci purses.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
